What are the differences between quality, reliability and statistical engineering?

These areas of emphasis each contribute to improving complete systems and processes. While similar, they have key distinctions. Quality engineering emphasizes quality assurance and control for products and services, which can apply to both development and production. Reliability engineering is based on ensuring a product or service continues to function as intended and statistical engineering focuses on resolving intricate questions and business issues through data and analysis.

By earning a Master of Engineering with an emphasis in quality, reliability and statistical engineering, you’ll learn the techniques of each and how they’re deployed in a wide range of industrial and business settings.

How can an emphasis in reliability engineering support my career goals?

 

A focus on customization allows you to choose courses that align with your academic and professional goals. You can continue to refine your technical skills, while gaining an understanding of the management side of an organization. Additionally, you have the unique opportunity to pair your degree with ASU Online’s Lean Six Sigma Black Belt graduate certificate, with the benefit of not needing to earn additional credit hours.

Who is best suited for this engineering degree?


You’re an ideal candidate for this program if you have work experience in a related field. Your interest in one or more of the following disciplines can also indicate this program may be a good fit:
  • Distribution and supply chain.
  • Manufacturing.
  • Process development.
  • Product, service and engineering design.

Additionally, an advanced background in mathematics is essential. To understand the course material, you must have completed differential and integral calculus courses, as well as a calculus-based probability and statistics course.

Will my engineering degree say 'online'?

No, Arizona State University’s diplomas don’t specify whether you earn your degree online or in person. All diplomas and transcripts simply say “Arizona State University.” That’s because ASU Online students learn from the same faculty and receive the same course content as in-person students receive.
